You may be wondering, “What are OEM parts?” OEM, or “original equipment manufacturer” parts are made by the manufacturer—or, in this case, Chevrolet. These auto parts are built using the same materials as the genuine OEM pieces you’re replacing in your Chevy vehicle. Compared to aftermarket parts, OEM Chevy parts and GM parts may be more expensive, but offer greater reliability. North Pole and Fort Wainwright Chevrolet owners can learn more about the benefits of Chevrolet parts/Chevrolet OEM parts below!

What Are Aftermarket Parts?

Car manufacturers like Chevrolet don’t produce aftermarket parts. Aftermarket auto parts are manufactured by a third party, or a company other than Chevy. Aftermarket auto parts are built at a high volume and designed to fit the specifications of a wide range of cars from different makes, not just Chevrolet vehicles. They’re often more affordable than OEM Chevy auto parts, but that’s usually because they, at best, fit mediocrely. Auto manufacturers don’t recommend aftermarket parts for this reason.

Chevy OEM Parts vs. Aftermarket

Other than quality, here are a few more reasons to choose OEM Chevrolet parts:

  • Less Overwhelming Selection: Whether you’re shopping for a replacement part or special performance parts, you won’t have to worry about comparing quality and price. You’ll get the appropriate part at a reasonable price.
  • Warranty Coverage: OEM GM parts and OEM Chevy parts are covered with a Limited Parts Warranty. Using an aftermarket part could jeopardize your warranty coverage if it can be proven that the part caused damage to your vehicle.

The bottom line: OEM Chevy parts are made to last as long as the original part you’re replacing. The same can’t be said for aftermarket.
